Harvesting Community Knowledge

Lastra, Sarai
2001

This paper addresses challenges system designers
may face when building a community information
system for a Latino community. Particularly it
examines: How can social network analysis, Latino
studies and computer supported cooperative work help
in understanding the community's information needs?
How can the design of an interface enhance access to
its networked resources? What are the challenges faced
when designing a tool whose goal is to harvest
community knowledge from a diasporic community? A
scenario is included in order to analyze issues related to
the design of community information systems, including
social capital strategies for harvesting community
knowledge.
